Remnants: Season of Wonder (The Remnants #1) by Lisa T. Bergren. April 8, 2014. Blink. Goodreads.
Andriana is a Remnant, one of the gifted teens born on the seventh day during the seventy-seventh Harvest after the Great War, and destined to act as humanity’s last shield against the horrors that now plague those who remain.
After years of training in stealth and warfare, Andriana and her Knight protector, Ronan, are finally ready to answer the Call and begin the life they were designed for. But as they embark with the other Remnants on the first of their assignments, they quickly discover that the world beyond their protected Valley home is more dangerous than they imagined.
The Sons of Sheol will stop at nothing to prevent Dri and Ronan from rescuing anyone sympathetic to the Remnants’ cause. And as the Remnants attempt to battle the demonic forces, other enemies close in. Dangers intensify, but so do Dri’s feelings for Ronan–the one emotion she is not meant to feel. In the midst of their mission, Andriana must find a way to master her feelings, or risk compromising everything.
Remnants isn’t the kind of book meant to finish in a day. The world building is so rich you’ll want a few days to read it and take it all in. Enjoy your time spent in Dri’s world.
Dri is a tough character, strong and brave. She tries not to let anything distract her from her mission and responsibility as a Remnant. Ronan is wonderful and supportive. I love watching a forbidden romance blossom. Since he’s her knight and she’s a Remnant there should be no romance going on. It’s amazing how making eye contact with the right guy can make a girl’s heart speed up. I’m looking forward to reading the next books in this series to find out what happens!!
If you love fantasy, dystopian, or young adult fiction then you’ll enjoy Remnants.
